The little flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi, in the first English translation by Francis( Book )

3 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fioretti ... [are] fixed upon Saint Francis and his earliest disciples in the way in which legend accumulates about any celebrated character in history. But, in this case, and in contrast with the situation that usually prevails in folk-lore, the 'stories' have a certain authority as history. Seventy years of Franciscan scholarship, to which L. Manzoni, Paul Sabatier and Giunio Garavani have made fundamental contributions, enable us even to evaluate the authenticity of the Little Flowers."--Introduction

2 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Points (an intersection in lower Manhattan formed when Anthony Street was extended to meet Orange and Cross-today's Baxter and North Streets), was the most infamous neighborhood in nineteenth-century America. Visitors from Charles Dickens to Abraham Lincoln flocked to Five Points to witness the filthy streets, bordellos, gambling dens, and tenements that housed the lowest of the low. A close look at Five Points reveals a hidden world. As one of the most ethnically varied areas in the nation's most diverse city, The Five Points story is a classic American example of immigrant energy and ambition. From "Bowery Boy" culture to the invention of tap dance, to the most famous prize-fight of the century, to the timeless photographs of Jacob Riis, Five Points illuminates the colorful history of a fascinating community
The Battle for Gaul by Julius Caesar( Book )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures in the history of man have had more to do with the shaping of our present civilization than Julius Caesar. A towering political leader, a military genius, and a skilled writer, he deserves a fate better than that of being a subject of an unwilling schoolboy's Latin lesson. Those readers who have long forgotten their Latin will find in this book new and sound perspectives on this important man, for there are few books that provide a better, more interesting picture of mankind at a historical crossroad.

"Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, commonly known as Suetonius (c. 69 ? after 122), was a Roman historian belonging to the equestrian order who wrote during the early Imperial era of the Roman Empire. His most important surviving work is a set of biographies of twelve successive Roman rulers, from Julius Caesar to Domitian, entitled De Vita Caesarum. He recorded the earliest accounts of Julius Caesar's epileptic seizures. Other works by Suetonius concern the daily life of Rome, politics, oratory, and the lives of famous writers, including poets, historians, and grammarians. A few of these books have partially survived, but many have been lost."--Wikipedia
